I have a leak in the oil pan (rusted thru at the drain plug) and a search indicated over $350 for the pan + $330 for the gasket! I am sure I can find cheaper but still effective gaskets.

Thanks
I've googled, looked all over the block, and searched the Mitsubishi website and cannot find a standard tractor engine for the 30bthree (what I have too). If you find one, please let me know.

For the gasket, couldn't you just use RTV silicone (Permatex)?
